Good Friday: The God who makes peace

Our history is marked with hostility.  From brokenness in simple relationships to hostility on a global scale.  Some may ask where God is in the midst of this hostility; has He abandoned us?  Where is God when we are crying out for peace?  The story of Good Friday reveals something stunning about God and our quest for peace on earth.

Good Friday: The Weakness of God

Images of Jesus in our minds are often images of strength, power, and leadership… He is the Son of God after all!  But the gospels actually present of very different image of Jesus… and the Easter weekend confronts us with an incredibly weak, dark, and broken image of Jesus.
